Relation Design window area is too small

Problem exists in 6.4 and the current Windows 10 64bit

When using the relation design window, the total area appears to be limited to slightly less than my 1920x1080 screen resolution. This seems to be the case no matter what the resolution or whether I start a new database.

I am new to databases, but I haven't even placed 25% of my tables yet and I have no more space to create relationships unless I remove the benefit of the visual interface by cramming them all together.

I have tried dragging tables to the edge, I have tried using the window resize tools, I have tried a blank database. I tried shrinking the screen resolution to see if the area shrunk too. I tried updating to the latest stable version of LibreOffice.

It doesn't seem like a bug, but maybe it is? Or I am using LibreOffice Base for a task that is too complicated for it, since I can't find this mentioned anywhere?

The area appears to be limited in size. It seems you are placing a lot on that screen or showing each table in full (each table can be scrolled).

Regardless, you can request an enhancement here - Bugzilla

Thank you. I will post the request, but it seems clear that I need to investigate other database options before I commit to anything. LibreOffice Base looks like a great solution, but it seems it is mostly used for singular tasks, rather than all-encompassing solutions.
